Mission

Teens for Food Justice (TFFJ) is a 501c3 nonprofit galvanizing a youth-led food justice movement working to ensure that all New Yorkers have access to fresh, healthy food and to end the cycle of health complications dramatically and unequally impacting low-income New Yorkers of color.

What We Do

TFFJ works within Title I middle and high schools in food deserts, training students to maintain indoor hydroponic farms growing thousands of pounds of produce annually that is served at school lunch and distributed to surrounding communities. Further, students learn nutrition and health skills to share with peers/neighbors, empowering them to lead themselves and others towards healthier futures.
